In order for us to finance all of our expenses we rely on our ASUC sponsorship, on donations and on our Taco sale Fundraisers. We usually hold 3 fundraisers per semester in which we sell Tacos, Quesadillas, Hot Dogs, and drinks. All profit goes back to the organization so that we can fund our health fair, and MIH; DDLM conferences. All members are welcomed to help out!
CHE promotes a community based environment because we know how important it is for members to be able to rely on each other so that they can help each other out. Our socials help members interact with one another and it also serves as a stress reliever from academics and other work. Our previous socials have consisted of Picnics, Broomball, Skate Night, Bowling, Ice skating, Halloween Party, and Secret Santa Exchanges. We encourage everyone to attend these socials!
Community Health Education Fair
C.H.E. has been providing opportunities to deliver health care, educate the community, and serve minority populations for over thirty years. The annual Health Fair is our biggest event and our principal outreach to the Berkeley community. Our Annual Community Health Awareness Health Fair targets the underserved community of Berkeley. We expect at least 200 community members to participate in the health fair and take advantage of free health screenings and services that we will be providing. Medical services will be provided medical professionals who donate their time to our health fair. Our goal is to provide a means for the underserved and underprivileged members of our community to get health check-ups and health information without the cost of visiting a doctor. Along with free screenings and services, we also put together a small First Aid kit (band aids, alcohol swabs, etc.) that we distribute to all those that participate in the health fair.
Minorities In Health Conference
The goal of the conference is to educate about the health disparities that affect our communities and find ways to decrease these disparities by encouraging and inspiring both high school and undergraduate students to continue to strive toward higher education and ultimately careers in health. Here, students will have the opportunity to network and interact with a variety of health professionals and graduate students from schools such as UCSF and UC Berkeley, attend beneficial workshops, participate in public health discussions, and better equip themselves for their journey in these competitive career tracks.
